Research Description

  • I am pursuing a PhD on the role of institutional dynamics in addressing water scarcity. Through both quantitative and qualitative analysis, I would like to measure the extent to which existing institutional arrangements allow for scarce water resources to be allocated equitably and environmentally beneficially. Additionally, I am interested in working with communities on public awareness of water scarcity issues.
